The wreck of the Peter Iredale, a 285ft ship that ran aground on the Clatsop Spit in 1906 while attempting to enter the mouth of the Columbia River, is less than a mile from the Ft. Stevens State Park campground. While the ship was not badly damaged, it became embedded in the sand and was later sold for scrap, the steel panels removed to leave only the ribs to rust away in the surf. #ftstevens #traveloregon #peteriredale #shipwreck
